the name's darling (well, online username! ) and here's my ACCUTANE log!
skin history / personal history -- 22-year old asian female, 5'6 and around 120-125 lbs (haven't gotten my dosage yet, probably 40-60 mgs/day?). just moved to the NYC area and started working after graduating from college! my skin has always been awful ever since high school, but only recently this year after coming back from London it literally EXPLODED. i dunno, maybe the UK has hard water or something / pollution (although i'm pretty sure NYC has worse pollution and my skin is always better here?!)
anyhoo, i'm left with a lot of marks and i want to finally get the flawless skin that everyone around me seems to have! my acne consists of MILLIONS of closed comedones (seriously. i think. every. freaking. pore has a whitehead), painful underground cystic acne, especially on my jawline AND whiteheads and blackheads galore!!! oh BTW, my skin is also an OIL SLICK. like literally sometimes i imagine frying eggs on it (lol jk) after i wash my face oil will start SEEPING THROUGH AGAIN like five minutes later. i am (sadly) not even joking.
i'll post pics after I start accutane (need to get my bloodwork done this week and visit a gyno to get on BCP!)
